Last month, we announced that Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is opening on June 13, 2019 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. We are excited to share with you more details on this epic new addition – along with two special guests. Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, and Alan Gilmore, Art Director for the Harry Potter films, are here to share more details about the new adventure:


It begins when you join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. For your journey you can either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar, providing two unique experiences. For the first time, you will soar through the Forbidden Forest and come face-to-face with some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures… but as often the case with Hagrid, things don’t go as planned.

  • This new experience combines a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets – including an actual forest with 1,200 live trees!
  • Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where you’ll twist, turn and rush forward – and backward – at speeds of up to 50 mph into the dark forest
  • Encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur; a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies; Fluffy the three-headed dog; and even one that’s never been seen in the films
  • Hurl past challenging obstacles, drop into an endless pit of Devil’s Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way

Who’s excited for June 13?! Stay tuned to the blog or sign up for email updates—more details will be released in the coming months.

    It looks to be one of the best rides ever in Universal Orlando.

    I wish I would’ve known about this amazing looking ride before we booked our trip two weeks ago for the end of May 😭! Any chance of an early soft opening?! 🤞

    Was wondering how the riders are restrained in the motorcycle and sidecar? Are the belted or harnessed?

    Any chance of this ride having a great queue like Forbidden Journey? I am not a roller coaster rider but loved being able to walk through the castle and exit before getting on the ride. The incredible attention to details in The World of Harry Potter was one of the highlights of my visit, and I’d love to see the Magical creatures.

    Is there anyway to ride the attraction the week before? We purchased our tickets before knowing this ride will be out. We purchased unlimited passes as well. Is there a sneak peak hour or sign-up that we can participate in. This will be huge for my sons that love Universal and Harry Potter.

    Are there going to be more spiders on this one? Or are arachnophobes safe this time around?

    Hi we are a family of 6 travelling from UK and can’t wait to arrive in Orlando at the end of May. We shall be staying in Cabana Bay Beach Resort for part of our trip and can’t wait to get back in the 3 Universal Parks. Gutted that this new ride does not open until we have departed for home back to UK on 10th June 2019 🙁 We would love to have a trial ride of the new ride if they need test passengers 🙂
